Laura Hamilton was challenged on A Place in the Sun when she had to find a character holiday home in southern Spain on a tight budget.
In Monday's episode (August 30) of the Channel 4 show that first aired in 2019, Yorkshire couple Marianne and Anthony had £50,000 to shell out for a home in the Axarquía region.
The task was certainly not easy and just minutes into the show viewers were complaining about the size and quality of the first property.
It was a one-bedroom townhouse for sale in Comares with two living rooms and an open-plan fitted kitchen.
Upstairs there was a double bedroom, family shower room, and a laundry area.
While it was on budget at €49,900 it failed to impress Marianne and Anthony and left people at home feeling just as aghast.
Commenting on Twitter, one user wrote: "That hovel offended my eyes! I just hope they get better!"
"I’ve seen bigger dollhouses," said a second viewer bluntly.
Another one moaned: "Jesus wept that’s not small that’s minute."
Someone else tweeted: "Hahahaha! Not enough room to swing a mouse, let alone a cat."
Marianne said it was a "bit on the small side", and noted there was barely room for the few furnishings in the room.
The owners had squeezed in a two-seater sofa, a small round table and two chairs and a couple of shelves.
Even with minimalist decor, the home felt very cramped and it was no surprise when Marianne and Anthony told Laura it would not be a contender.
Luckily, the couple fell in love with property number five, a two-bedroom townhouse in the village of Almachar.
The house boasted original features and it immediately won over Marianne, who said: "We can’t walk away from this."
"My knees are shaking," said Anthony in agreement.
They put in an offer of £50,000 and it was quickly accepted, leaving the couple bursting with joy.
